Tea Party Patriots Bringing the Conscience of America to Washington DC
The Stop Online Piracy Act and Protect IP Act bills are just too misguided and egregious to not take the time to stop them! The language is recklessly broad and represents an imminent danger to freedom! We already have laws to protect against piracy. This is an effort by some in government to be able to throttle and even eliminate free speech over the internet at will.
Look closely at the "bi-partisan support", this is scary. It is just another chapter in the ongoing battle for the government (the "Party of Power") to extend its dominion over the citizens. All of these encroachments on freedom we have seen in recent years have had well meaning or innocent sounding names, whether through design or carelessness, they strangle liberty just the same.
Thomas Jefferson rightly noted: "I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it."
Protect free speech!
Act now! Call your Congressmen and Senators today!
Internet freedom is essential!
Protect and defend against government overreach.
Act Now, with every slight against liberty our freedom grows weaker.
Thank You for all of your calls to Stop: SOPA/PIPA
Although shelved for the time being, it remains a threat, we must remain ever vigilant.
P.S. After an onslaught of outrage Senator Leahy has changed the name of the PIPA bill to hopefully make it more palatable: Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act of 2011, sorry Senator, we are not biting.
